" our relationship with the british is stronger than ever, not surprisingly this is just another feeble attempt by the mitt romney campaign to store

political science at the expense of the critical partnership. this assertion is beneath a presidential campaign ". >> a mitt romney spokesperson has denied reports telling cbs news that " it is not true, if anyone said that, they were not reflecting the views of governor mitt romney or anyone inside of the campaign. so the president's campaign advisor david axelrod is calling these comments " stunningly offensive ". but we should make a note that generally speaking carissa arrest is given more leeway to use anonymous sources than the american media. we do want to change gears because that and united states an important day in the senate. pass the bill to keep tax cuts on middle-class. this bill keeps the bush era tax cut for those making less than $200,000 per year and it is in line with what the president has said he wants. it did not however keep the tax cut for the rich as the republicans wanted. this bill is expected to die when it is passed the house with the republican majority. but it is still considered a
